The congress leader said, "We had told the state government four months ago that people would have to face a major drought. But the BJP-Shinde-Ajit Pawar government was busy with its fights and breaking other parties. Governance-Administration lok sabha elections But now after the elections are over, the state government should immediately focus on providing water and fodder." Patole said, "Animal Husbandry and Dairy Development minister Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil says that there is enough fodder available in the state for 45 days. If fodder is available then what moment is the corrupt Mahayuti government waiting for to distribute it? Fodder camps should be started immediately. The untimely rains have already caused huge losses to the farmers and now they are facing a big crisis and they need immediate assistance."
